Lana Del Rey Premieres “How To Disappear” Live At Apple Event

Lana Del Rey surprised fans when she not only appeared at yesterday’s Apple event, but performed a new song! Closing out Apple’s event in Brooklyn, Lana took the stage to perform her recent single “Venice Bitch” as well as a brand new song, “How To Disappear.” Fans previously heard a snippet of the song when Lana teased it on Instagram earlier this month; that post has since been deleted, but fans captured the clip on YouTube.

“How To Disappear” is a solemn, moving ballad. The live premiere featured only a piano as the instrumental backdrop. Footage of Lana’s full “How To Disappear” performance is impossible to find, though clips are available. See a 20-second recording of the live debut below:

 

Fans captured the audio of the show – without the visual accompaniment – so you can at least hear the full song. Listen to “How To Disappear” in full below. In spite of the video’s name, this is not official studio audio of the song.

“How To Disappear” is set to appear on Lana’s upcoming album, Norman Fucking Rockwell, due out early in 2019. Lana already released two official singles from it: “Mariners Apartment Complex” and “Venice Bitch.” Throughout October, Lana also teased a few other songs. In addition to “How To Disappear,” Lana shared clips of “Cinnamon,” “Sylvia Plath,” and an unknown song featuring Machine Gun Kelly. The album may also include a song called “Happiness Is A Butterfly,” which Lana teased earlier this year.

Lana’s last album, Lust For Life, came out just last year. Lana entered the studio in January this year, working with Jack Antonoff on the project. There’s no release date for Norman Fucking Rockwell yet, but it should be ready this winter or spring.

Enjoy the live version of “How To Disappear,” and stay tuned for news of any studio releases of the song. As always, keep checking back here for all the latest Lana Del Rey music news.

‘Turn It Around: The Story Of East Bay Punk’ To Premiere May 31st

Three years ago, Green Day revealed they were working on a documentary, tentatively called EAST BAY: By The Punx, For The Punx, About The Punx. The name has since changed, and now Turn It Around: The Story Of East Bay Punk is set to premiere at the San Francisco Documentary Film Festival on May 31st. Executive produced by Green Day and Pat Magnarella, Corbett Redford directed and produced the documentary. Iggy Pop narrates Turn It Around. The documentary features interviews with more than 40 members of the music scene. Members from Green Day, NOFX, Dead Kennedys, Metallica, Guns N Roses, Primus, AFI, and more all appear.

Turn It Around is a massive documentary that covers the East Bay punk scene from its beginnings in the 1970s through the rise of 924 Gilman Street to its legacy today. Fittingly, it debuts on the opening night of the 16th San Francisco Documentary Film Festival. On Wednesday, May 31st, the festival will kick off with the premiere of Turn It Around at the Alamo Drafthouse New Mission Theater at 7:oo pm.

You can purchase tickets to opening night screening of Turn It Around here. For more information about the festival and complete lineup info, visit: SFINDIE.COM

Following the film, SF DocFest will host a Gilman-style live music showcase party at DNA Lounge that will feature The Pathogens, The Love Songs, Kamala and The Karnivores, and Hammerbombs. The event is free with Opening Night Film Ticket Stub. Party only tickets are $10/advance, $12/door, $10 at the door with any Gilman membership card. The show is all ages.

Furthermore, the national theatrical run of Turn It Around will start a few days after the premiere.

Turn It Around is just the latest documentary related to Green Day. Earlier this spring Spotify shared Green Day: The Early Years. Last year, they (finally) released Heart Like A Hand Grenade about the making of American Idiot. Before that, we got Broadway Idiot, about the American Idiot musical, and Cuatro!, about their 2012 trilogy of albums. Meanwhile, Green Day just released their album Revolution Radio last year. It gave us singles “Bang Bang” and “Still Breathing.”

Lana Del Rey’s “Salvatore” Is An Alluring Italian Serenade

Lana Del Rey’s fourth studio album, Honeymoon, is set to come out in just a few days, and we’ve already heard four new songs from it. After last week’s lush, jungle-like “Music To Watch Boys To,” this week we get an Italian serenade in “Salvatore.” BBC Radio 1 premiered the song today, and it is certainly the best Honeymoon song we’ve heard so far. It starts with sweet strings and soft drums before Lana’s sultry voice comes in. The chorus is big and cascading as Lana croons “ahhahh,” “ladadadada,” and “ciao amore.” It’s an atmospheric, gorgeous song with lyrical imagery that paints a European scene in your head.

After premiering the song, BBC also shared a brief interview with Lana about the song. At 4:30 in the clip below, Lana describes “Salvatore”:

That’s probably the track that’s most different from all the other tracks on the record. I guess it has a little bit of an old world, Italian feel. It’s kind of a weirder song. But I love the chorus… It’s filmic.

Lana also spoke about movie soundtracks, acting, and her love of vinyl before they played the song again. Listen to “Salvatore” and Lana’s interview below:

Honeymoon will be out this Friday on September 18th. If you pre-order the album on iTunes, you can get instant downloads of “Music To Watch Boys To,” ballad “Terrence Loves You,” single “High By The Beach,” and the title track, “Honeymoon.” You’ll have to wait until September 18th to get a download of “Salvatore,” but you can stream it above in the meantime.
